Looking to become a home inspector in Utah? Utah is one of roughly 20 states that still have not adopted licensing requirements for home inspectors.
Steps to become a home inspector in Utah:
- Register for the ICA Real Estate Inspection Certification Program. This will not only give you all the knowledge you’ll need to perform a home inspection and own/operate your own successful home inspection business, but you’ll also learn all about commercial inspections, as well as mold, radon, and code. Upon completion of the course you will be an ICA Certified Home Inspector and we will issue you a certification number, which you can use on your business cards and inspection reports.
- Start your own business or go to work for an existing company!
Requirements for Utah Home Inspectors
Though the Beehive State does not officially require such a course for professional home inspectors, it’s worth the time and effort to educate yourself on the industry best practices. Home inspection requirements vary from state to state, but one universal truth applies to every region: the most learned you are in the daily operations of home inspectors, the better service you’ll provide your clients.
Utah home inspection requirements might be relatively lax, but that doesn’t mean aspiring home inspectors should skip out on educating themselves. After all, you wouldn’t want to be caught without answers while talking to a client about their home. The ICA Real Estate Inspection Certificate Program is the ideal way to learn the ins and outs of the profession. Even better, you’ll have official documentation to point to when clients ask about your training.
